During the truffle season Truffle Dog Services will continue to provide surveying of trees by dogs. COVID-19 is currently at Alert Level 2 (23 March 2020) , and at this level we will undertake surveying of truffle orchards. If the Alert Level is level 3 or higher, Truffle Dog Services will no longer complete surveys for those in the localised Level 3 area, or any surveys if Alert L3 is nationwide.
NOTE: Surveys may be cancelled at short notice if the COVID-19 Alert Level is increased above Alert Level 2.
When we complete surveys we will be practicing social distrancing during this time and will indicate where truffles are located through the use of bright stakes. It will then be your decision to leave the truffle in the ground, or to remove it depending on your market.
Between now and the truffle season we will set out a full set of Surveying prototcols and keep them update here. Feel free to contact us if you have any queries regarding Truffle Dog Services NZ completing a survey.2020 Survey Schedule for Truffle Dog Services.
